This essay reflects on the relationships between heritage and place amid the current radical transformations involving, in particular, a new conception of the residents and the users of an area. In contrast to the pure conservation policies that often underpin institutional heritage projects, an individual and collective assumption of responsibility is required from the community that has developed it or that uses it, as several participatory-management experiences show. Indeed, only in this way, through a transformative effort with sensitivity to its affective value and cultural significance, can (material but also immaterial) heritage become an active resource for local development, in a framework of social, environmental and economic sustainability.
Keywords: Local development; heritage policy; participatory management
